v8.5 w patch 8 versus v8.7 patch 1 (when released)

We've been using 8.5 for a long time. I've had my users at patch 5 (except for Vista users). I didn't see a reason to go to a newer patch in 8.5 but am wondering what I am missing.

Are there big advantage to go from 8.5 p5 -> 8.5 p8 OR should I wait for long awaited patch 1 of 8.7 (we tested 8.7 on a dozen Win XP and several Windows 7 with no problem)?

Just wondering what others are doing.

RE: v8.5 w patch 8 versus v8.7 patch 1 (when released)

We are going from 8.0P15 to 8.7 at the moment, without any problems, I find 8.7 compareable with 8.5P4.

Same setup here

I have exactly the same setup as you do. Most up-to-date workstations are 8.5 Patch 5. It looks like they're never going to fix the issue where you need to apply a hotfix before another patch, so I'm keeping it the way it is. I will wait at least one month after 8.7 Patch 1 comes out before I start testing it.
